My name is Ashlee Middleton. I was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida and attended college at The University of South Florida in Tampa. I graduated in 2009, magna cum laude, with my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the College of Arts and Sciences.
From there, I pursued my professional teaching certification and became certified in English 6-12, Journalism, and Social Sciences 6-12. I have been teaching since 2012 at the high school level. During this time, I have been honored as Sarasota County’s High School Teacher of the Year, received the Congressional Teaching Award and served my prior school as professional development coordinator and a mentor to new teachers.
I am excited to be working for AVE and with the staff and students. I love teaching and creating meaningful experiences that enhance our students’ education.
Outside of school, I am a wife and mother to two beautiful children. When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my family and creating memories to last a lifetime!
